Make the Most of Your OPI Gel and Shellac Polish Experience
A fresh coat of paint can spruce up any surface, and the same goes for your nails. OPI has created coveted polish formulas and colors for years, and OPI's gel and shellac polish lines exhibit some of the hottest styles as seen in salons around the globe. You can achieve that professional salon look at home with OPI gel nail polish.Choosing the perfect color for you
When searching through the multitude of affordable OPI gel colors available on eBay, be sure to consider what you will be wearing with the shade and how you want the color to make you feel. Two methods of searching eBay for OPI gel to help you narrow your options are:
- Specified color - Select a color tab at the top of the screen to filter OPI gel polish to display specific shades.
- Collections - Another way to find the perfect OPI gel color is to search the many collections that have launched over the years. Typically, these sets will include several colors in complementary shades.
Both formulas offer impressive quality with wear time and color opacity but offer different overall experiences with application and removal as follows:
- Gel - OPI gel nail polish has a thicker consistency and lasts roughly three weeks to a month. Although there are base and topcoats that make the removal process simple, it is a more involved process than simply swiping an acetone-soaked cotton ball over your nail.
- Shellac - OPI shellac has a consistency closer to that of traditional polishes but lasts roughly two to three weeks. Follow your typical removal routine when it's time to give your manicure a touchup.
It doesn't matter whether you decide to go with your favorite color in the new OPI gel polish or the shellac formula because there are tons of different finishes to choose from once you've decided what shade you want your nails to be. You can find an impressive collection of reasonably priced OPI gel colors for sale on eBay in the following styles:
- Chrome - OPI gel colors look even more show-stopping when you select one of the chromatic formulas. These chrome colors have a bright metallic sheen that shows off just a touch of your chosen color.
- Matte - Matte gel nail colors are among some of the most elegant shades you can find. Matte gel polish is ideal for those who want a rich color without all the added shine.
- Prismatic - Obtain a whimsical and mysterious look with a prismatic gel color that changes color as you move your nails.
- Glitter - If you love to sparkle and shine, you can find a multitude of OPI gel colors with shimmering glitter that gives your look some extra pizazz.
